    I will always remember your mom as being so sweet when I would stay the night at your house. She made the best cinnabon toast. She was kind of ditzy, too, at that time, but that just made her more lovable because she made me laugh. She was such a hard worker, too. She did whatever she' needed to do to take care of y'all. And I know my mom and Aunt Billie enjoyed their time with her. I'm so sorry for your loss and pray for your family's comfort at this time.

    Annette did a good job of raising 3 kids on her own
    while running a successful auto business....
    You can remember her and only that she is gone
    Or you can cherish her memory and let it live on...

    I recently took ‘fake’ but colorful flowers to Annette. She always loved Spring & the flowers in bloom. After 34 years of friendship, her memory will be inseparable from flowers in bloom. Attached to the vase was this poem:
    “Flowers picked just for you
    That won’t cause an Ah-Choo
    Red, yellow, pink and blue;
    Just a tiny ole clue
    That our friendship is true!
    Thank you for being my friend all these years “
